Vuelve el evento de moda anual del Medio oriente!
Este año, la semana de la moda de Dubai tuvo lugar desde el 14 hasta el 16 de abril en el hotel Armani de Dubai con un modelo de “Mira y compra”.
La historia de este evento comenzó con la semana de la moda de Dubai en 2005. Fue organizada por una empresa de eventos (Capital Marketing FZ LLC) y co-fundada por el famoso productor de moda Marc Robinson.
The show has been managed and organized by Paris, London and New York Events & Publishing, and is rumored to become the next big capital of fashion.
The show which is part of the Arab Fashion week (AFW) which also takes place in Riyadh showcases International brands and Arab local designers. However, clothes must fit the « ready-couture » which defines garments which are labeled as couture primarily because there are handmade but are also created for the purpose of being worn instead of simply putting on a show.
Michael Cinco and Marchesa are designers amongst many others to have presented their collection on the runway at the DFW this year with dresses that demonstrate tremendous skills in their creation and design. The outfits included ready couture, bridal wear as well as resort collections.
A show which can be mistaken as the Dubai Fashion Week, is the International Dubai Fashion week which is showcased twice a year to the media but also includes couture and ready-to-wear and will begin on the 18th of October and ends on the 20th of the same month. This event showcases international brands but also gives the opportunity for university students to participate and showcase their pieces.
Dubai fashion week has included modest pieces on the runway alongside buyers mostly from Middle Eastern and Asian markets, private clientele and entries that are only available by invitation.
The Dubai fashion week is the only event to showcase ‘ready-couture’ as well as resort collections with the possibility to order pre-collections.
It seems like it will soon be the « Big 5 » of fashion weeks for Dubai, the pioneer of ‘ready-couture’ to be next after New York, London, Milan and Paris!
